>>> good day. i'm in for con tesz ya brewer. we're covering the big news from coast to coast. the hot topic is just that. we're talking about the sorching summer heat. >> beautiful weather out there if you love heat and humidity. today will be the hottest and most humid day of the summer. >> today? >> look at the numbers. right up into the triple digits. >> dallas has been baking in 100 degree temperatures for ten straight days. >> horrible. horrible. >> near hudson, texas, it's not the heat or the humidity, that's the drought. >> oouf never seen it like this. >> across the south temperatures are soaring and water levels are sinning. it's so bad a south georgia man is sharing the water from his pool. >> we're carrying buckets of water back and forth to the neighbors. >> in the midwest oppressive heat claimed one life. a man found dead inside his mobile home on sunday, the air conditioner wasn't working. >> this is oppressive and dangerous heat affecting more than 20 states and more than 90 million people. >> there are heat advisories or warnings in 24 of the 48 lower states.
and what doesn't get paid. another big story right now, a massive and dangerous heat wave is gripping much of the nation. here's how it looks and feels across the country. take a look at the red quarter. temperatures expected to reach 104 degrees in parts of texas today, in the southeast, temperatures are expected to reach the upper 90s and more than just uncomfortable, it's dangerous. heat has already claimed the life of at least one person in illinois and adding to that, the heat is causing drought conditions in the deep south to intensify. also this morning, hundreds of thousands still without power in the chicago area after strong thunderstorms rolled through. officials warn the power there might not be back on until saturday. let's go live to rob marciano outdoors this morning, silly rob, in atlanta's piedmont park. sun still not up, so it's still probably manageable there. but a lot of the south waking up this morning to 80 degrees overnight or higher. >> yeah. that's the thing. really hasn't cooled down much overnight, ali. even if you're out before the sun comes up you're still fee

. is that realistic at this point. >> well, in terms of getting that big agreement, it looks highly unlikely at this point, but certainly as you pointed out, the president joking that his campaign was built on hope and change. it will be interesting to see if that hope will also win out in this debate. but, look, what the president is pushing for still is the biggest deal possible. he acknowledged, though, that it's hard to do that, but nonetheless, he has been telling congressional lawmakers during negotiations all this week that if they can't get the biggest deal possible to attack the problem of the debt and the deficit over the long term, then they should still be ambitious. >> we are obviously running out of time, and so what i have said to the members of congress is that, you need over the next 24 to 36 hours to give me some sense of what your plan is to get the debt ceiling raised through whatever mechanisms they can think about and show me a plan in terms of what you're doing for deficit and debt reduction. if they show me a serious plan, i am ready to move. even if it requires some
's why. big area of high pressure. there's a big strong upper ridge. this is just a heat pump that will continue. and the bad news is, this goes into at least thursday. in fact, jet stream guns up a little further into canada so that heat will be creeping up north as the ridge intensifies. we don't see this breaking down at least until the weekend. so the mid section of the country is going to continue to bake the northeast gets a little bit of a break as we head on into the next 72 hours. ann? >> all right, al, thank you so much. we'll get the rest of your forecast in a bit. >>> for now, to britain's deepening phone hacking scandal. this morning there are claims that journalists from other rupert murdoch's other papers were involve and the alleged target is former p.m. gordon brown. stephanie goss is in london with this. stephanie, good morning. >> good morning, ann. gordon brown does not mince his words when he spoke to the bbc this morning about rupert murdoch's papers me said those papers used people to gather information on known criminals. the allegations appearing in th
our fiscal house in order, they say, and they want big spending cuts in exchange for raising the debt ceiling. i will say, though, house republican leaders, they seem to at least be publicly more open to the idea. john boehner, the house speaker, even saying yesterday that he thinks mitch mcconnell has done very good work. we've also heard from some democrats, suzanne, that they seem to be open to the idea as well. one important point to make. while this doesn't require spending cuts, this mcconnell plan does have a catch. it would force very politically tough votes ahead of the 2012 election that republicans opposed to the debt ceiling could be on the record opposing, and also it's designed to then put the full responsibility of raising this debt ceiling of this new debt right in the lap of the president. there is some planning there. >> kate, how much do you understand what's going on here? obviously you've got the president, you have democrats, you have republicans, but republicans are even divided amongst themselves in this debate and it seems like there is a rift now between john
, some real big news, actually, because speaker boehner, it seems, may have a plan that will come to fruition, before 4 p.m. this afternoon so that the asian markets aren't rattled and it will involve sort of a two pronged approach. >> yeah, but the most important part of the two step process clayton mentioned there's going to be a short-term extension involved and the democrats have objected to that, as you know, from the very beginning, the president, nancy pelosi, harry reid all three last night reiterating they will not support a short-term extension. so it appears we are playing with some serious fire on this sunday. >> what does john boehner do, comes up and hands over the paper work, they immediately say no. listen to this, thises what mitch mcconnell has to say about this. there is bipartisan agreement on the need to prevent fault and given the unprecedented size of the debt ceiling increase, the president is requesting, this is not an easy process. and the effort to prevent default while substantially reducing washington spending will continue. >> of course, all of the co
the democrats point of view, no tax hikes as well. >> that's the big sacrifice? one of their big cuts is a trillion dollars out of the defense budget because they figured out that the iraq war is winding down so afghanistan is also winding down and that's the trillion dollars they thought they'd save but they don't list anything with the harry reid plan and not to look at entitlements, how could you possibly say we're taking a hard look and making tough decision abouts the future of our -- of the country economically and not look at entitlements when even the president of the united states has had a problem. let's look at john boehner. he says, all right, i'll raise the debt ceiling. this is what i mean by a two phased plan. just a trillion dollars and we'll have $1.2 trillion in cuts by the end of the year. the future cuts will be commissioned and sent up after they commission a bipartisan panel to decide, you know, republicans or democrats to decide which will be cut and what shouldn't. >> and apparently, it would be along the lines of the cut, cap and balance as you can see right t

they get a tax-exempt status? >>reporter: that is the big question is. any groups that a right, obviously, to form and criticize fox news. the question is, should that be a taxper, subsidized, tax-exempt deductibl activity. media matters is something called a 501 (c) 3 referring to the section of the code that covers it and deductions to media matters are people getting to take off their taxes as if they gave money to the red cross or salvation army. and media matters is increasingly political in recent years and the founder has formatted what is scale add super pac to raise large amounts of money to defeat republican candidates and there are reports that the white house is in the entirely happy with that because they felt he was more effective attacking fox news at media matters. the question is, should that be subsidized by the federal government. deep deep the deep pockets, obviously, george soros and tell us about his past for those that do not know. >>reporter: he is a billionaire, naturalized american citizen and has in the past been caught up in insider trading activity in jump, an
